The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Rail-Highway Operations Manual is intended to cover responsibilities and best practices on projects that impact both roadway and railroad rights-of-ways. The manual defines both District and Division TxDOT responsibilities on the various types of projects encountered and coordination efforts required between railroad companies and other entities.
This manual is not a railroad operations manual and does not cover items related with train scheduling, railroad worker safety, or commonly asked questions from the public related to railroad operations.
The Rail-Highway Operations Manual is a new manual.
The Rail-Highway Operations Manual is a new TxDOT manual and supersedes the Railroad Operations Volume published in 1998.Anchor: #i998710
